Starlette's Story...
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

**adoption pending***Star is a Chinese Crested Powderpuff rescued from an Amish puppy mill. She has spent the past 6 months learning about life outside of a cage, gaining weight and muscle tone. She has a wonderful resilient and fearless personality so she has done remarkably well in her transition to home-life. She has the energy and playfulness of a puppy. She would do best in a home with another dog that loves to play as much as she does! She would also do best with a family that is home a lot. She loves to chew Nylabones, play with toys and run. She has not yet learned to play with people but she loves to cuddle if she is picked up. She has learned to walk on a leash but remains a bit skittish and hypervigilent outside. She is still working on her house training. She is crate trained and sleeps there at night.
Star has a history of severe Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis which can recur. She has been stable since March and should remain stable with proper care. Her vet recommends she take a Probiotic for life. These are not expensive & she loves them like treats! She should eat a high quality food without abrupt changes to her diet. She should be monitored closely for bloody diarrhea and treated promptly by a vet if she has any symptoms. Ironically, this condition is probably what spared this sweet little girl from a life of breeding in the mill! NOTE: Dogs that come from a puppymill may have very different behavior patterns than dogs that have been raised in a home environment! Star is currently in a Pony cut as shown in her last photo. There are many options for grooming a Powderpuff. Check out all of her photos to see her different looks!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Starlette, a Lansing Chinese Crested dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chinese Crested for sale in Lansing, or seeking a Chinese Crested dog from a breeder in Lansing.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lansing already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lansing breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chinese Crested breeders who help with Chinese Crested rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lansing paves the way for another one to be saved.
